So a quick bit of background:
Paleo (80%) since May 1st. Going really well, heaps of energy and feeling great but no weight loss.
Whole 30 since July 1st. Going ok. Discovered last week that I am FODMAP sensitive. Eliminating certain foods (mainly my staples/favourites - avocado, beetroot, brocolli, cauliflower, asparagus) which has helped with bloating. I've also started to avoid sweet potato which is a "be careful" FODMAP food.
Problem is, I'm training for the Spartan Race and average training week is:
Mon - HIIT - 1hour // Tues - 2-3 mile jog // Weds - Circuit Training - 1 hour // Thurs - 2-3 mile jog // Friday - Rest Day // Sat - HIIT - 1 hour and/or 2-3 mile jog // Sun - Rest Day
Typical Day's food:
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil over the day in coffee/decaf
B: - 2 hardboiled eggs, sometimes a fillet of smoked mackerel
L: - Big Ass Salad - chicken breast, leaves, toms, cucumber, olive oil
D: - Hunk of protein, veggies in coconut oil
If I'm hungry in between I'll have a banana (very hungry today so have had 2).
I'm losing inches through lack of swelling from FODMAPs but workouts are suffering and I'm wondering if I'm not getting enough carbs. I don't want to eat sweet potato etc as it'll make me feel unwell and bloated. So not really sure what to do - should I up the fat to try and push myself into ketosis? Or just make my meals bigger, or fit in another meal?
Any help is really appreciated - only have 2 weeks until the race and need my energy back!!
